Looking for an unforgettable speaker?
After I wrote Rise, I realized there was so much more I could do to motivate others to build a bigger future.
I want to blow the roof off your goals by insisting you do something impossible. The only way to change your path is to shock yourself and everyone around you into a bigger vision of who you are.
Want an impossibly BIG future? No excuses. No delays. No quitters. Let’s build something together! From conferences to parenting groups and corporations, my mission is to motivate attendees to build something big.

“Inspiring, heartwarming, heartbreaking, and occasionally terrifying, this is a story of triumph and of new beginnings. You may find yourself laughing, followed by tears or gasping in horror as this amazing family rise from the ruins of their old lives. A must read!”
“Incredible, incredible story! Well written and riveting! Horrifying the terror this family had to go through, but so amazing how they were able to survive and then thrive. And I was most impressed with the kids’ attitudes during the build! Great job Brookins Family!!”
“I felt as if I was there in the room with her. A majority of the book is on rebuilding their lives, brick by brick. Showing that she has actually overcome the abuse of her past and risen like a phoenix from the ashes. This is a very uplifting read. I highly recommend it!”
